Adhom is "you're an idiot and therefore your opinion is wrong". What I said is "you are reading into my comment way more than I put into it, you are wrong". Or is pointing out that someone is wrong an automatic adhom now? Seriously?

Your comment does not state that you believe he was wrong. You should be more specific, it doesn't read the way you think it does.

Where do you think it rates on the DH scale?

Uhm. I think it was quite direct - it suggested that he reads into my comment more than I put into it. I guess I could have said "you are wrong I didn't imply any cticism", instead I said "may you be reading too much into my comment?" which I see as less conrontational. I fail to see a crime in this, an it's quite amusing that at least 8 different people piled on to downmod.

I can't see a rational reason for this type of behavior.

And by the way, do you retract your ad-hom accusation or do you stand by it?
